Vicksburg Mayor Paul Winfield told a federal judge Thursday that he's not guilty of bribery.
Winfield appeared in federal court for his arraignment. A judge set trial for June 3rd and reminded Winfield that he faces 10 years in prison plus a $250,000 fine if convicted. His sentence could also include 3 years of supervised release.
Winfield is accused of promising a city contract to a company for a price of $10,000 in February. Turns out that company rep was an informant with the FBI.
Winfield just settled a sexual harassment lawsuit with his former chief of staff, Kenya Burks. Burks claims the two had an affair but was fired after she broke up with Winfield.
